Yes that’s what I read too. I never saw a bruise appear one or two days later that intense.

Something else I never thought of before. What if Darlle's bruises were caused by Darin trying to restrain her after he realized that she just stabbed Devon and Damon? Darlie could have still been flailing around and cut herself during this, but Darin would have been lacerated too, and if I recall, he was not injured. I also feel that maybe Darin stabbed the boys, and Darlie tried to intervene and was cut by the knife. Darin, knowing that if he killed his wife, would be solely blamed and imprisoned for the deaths, so he needed Darlie alive so she could take the fall. Might all sound farfetched, but not entirely impossible.
I can’t even begin to point out all of the fail in this post... so I won’t.

Darlie Routier is 100% guilty of murdering her sons and I question the sanity of those that think otherwise. Either they haven’t researched the physical evidence enough or they are blinded by “pretty white woman” syndrome or both.

She's 100% guilty and the last ABC special did not change that for me.

Dude, look who created this thread. Of course I know about the case. I've only studied it for several years. A good researcher looks at all angles, however likely or unlikely. The Routier case has apparencies and it has discrepancies. Not everything is as it seems. I'm still convinced that Darin was somehow involved, whether it was during or after the fact. There's no way he slept through the stabbings and Darlie couldn't have staged the scene by herself (ex. the tube sock) without waking him.

I think he may well have buttressed the intruder theory by bruising his wife for those photographs post-murders though I very much doubt he would have colluded in killing the boys. The original invader theory was his with the insurance scam motive and I think Darlie embellished it diabolically due to her own financial concerns combined with her mental health issues.

I don't recall if it was revealed, but how deep were the wounds? Who would have created enough force to inflict those wounds, a man or a woman? Just a few small questions that haven't been cleared up.

That's an interesting theory. And it wouldn't shock me if it turned out to be true. I do not think Darin had anything to do with the murders, but helping Darlie cover it up after the fact? Wouldn't put it past him.

She was put under general anesthesia at the hospital, so by sight the doctors must have thought her wounds were serious. She had a nine-centimetre neck wound which stopped two centimetres distant from the carotid artery, which if severed would have meant she would have bled to death within minutes. In addition she had sustained a 1 and a half inch deep cut to her left shoulder and a similar deep stab wound to her right forearm. No injuries to forearms, palms or fingers.

Felt like Darin's possible involvement could explain why the sock ended up yards from the house.

One of the things that surprises me about this case is I've never seen him point the finger at her. If he helped cover for her, that would explain why. It's just a theory, but I think it makes more sense than an intruder running out of the house with a sock. I can't think of a reason why a hypothetical perpetrator would.

Do we know when the sock was found? And did they ever say if the sock belonged to one of the Routiers?

The sock was found the same evening by Sergeant Ward. It was later matched to Darin's shoe and Darin himself admitted that it was his.

That's hysterical. I never heard that it was Darin's sock. This certainly doesn't help Darlie's case. A couple of the investigators on the ABC show said the perp took the sock, covered it with a chemical, and held it over Darlie's mouth which incapacitated her.

Ok... So someone breaks in and brings the chemical to incapacitate her but not the sock? Does that make any g.d. sense???

She suffers from histrionic personality disorder, desirous of being the centre of attention or feeling that she was, the onset of her fourth pregnancy after the abortion leading to post-natal depression and an apprehension that she was trapped, the diet pill Fastin one attempt to regain her former physique, though only causing insomnia, the culmination being the tragedy of that night when in her mind it was them or her..

Too boot, Darin repeated the same thing basically saying that it was a sexual assault.

I think Darin was the one who ran the sock out of the house. How long did Darlie say it took to fight off the attacker? If she screamed for Darin as well as fighting the assaulter - what was Darin doing? Taking a leak? Then running down to help. Then the assaulter just hightailed out of the house and disappeared in the night before Darin had a clue what was going on. That is IF Darlie was screaming for Darin to help.

She changed her story, which didn't help her case. On June 6 she told Police she woke to find the attacker with the knife standing over her, but two days on when she first woke up Damon was pressing on her shoulder and the intruder was walking away from her.

I don't think she fell asleep that night at all..
